About / APWLD’s Believes:

  • The concept of law includes the legal system as well as the customary practices;
  • Law plays a critical role as it can promote or inhibit women’s access to resources as well as their participation in development processes;
  • Legally sanctioned hierarchical gender structures, production modes and socio-cultural relations need to be seriously addressed by all stakeholders. New social structures require new legal instruments;
  • Knowledge of the law, legal processes and one’s rights is a process of empowerment.
